What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy has been practiced since the early 1900s, and is a safe and effective treatment solution for your varicose veins, reticular veins, and spider veins. Research has demonstrated that sclerotherapy is effective at treating both the cosmetic appearance and symptoms of abnormal veins. Varicose veins, reticular vein, and spider veins can easily be treated with sclerotherapy at Concept Medical, with no downtime. Treatment sessions last up to 15-30 minutes in length and are very tolerable. After treatment, your body will seal off, and attempt to dissolve the abnormal vein over the following weeks. After treatment you may return to work and regular daily activities, without any downtime. Although we ask that you do not put lotion on your legs prior to treatment, there is no other preparation required prior to your treatment. Many small veins may disappear with only one treatment; however repeat treatment visits are usually required for optimal results.
